According to M-Live, the schedule will include the usual preseason opponents Chicago, Pittsburgh and Toronto.  This year the Red Wings will play a game against the New York Islanders.

This preseason will also see the Red Wings play in the Kraft Hockeyville game against the Stanley Cup champion St. Louis Blues on September 26th.

The game will be played in Calumet in the Upper Peninsula north of Houghton.

The preseason is a great chance to see some of the Red Wings prospects and younger players in action.
